'Family Guy' scribe to adapt Hanna-Barbera cartoon

David Goodman has been tapped to pen "Hong Kong Phooey," Alcon's take on the Hanna-Barbera cartoon being produced by the company's Andrew Kosove and Andrew Johnson. Rat Entertainment is also producing.

The cartoon, which aired in the mid-1970s, concerned a kung-fu fighting dog and his sidekick cat who fight crime. Alcon plans to make the adaptation a live-action/CGI hybrid.

Goodman, an executive producer and writer on "The Family Guy," worked on "Who is Killing the Great Chefs?" a remake of the 1978 movie "Who Is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe?" which is set up at Warner Bros. He is also adapting the web-comic "Last Blood."

Goodman is repped by UTA and Benderspink.
